@  Ashley : (21 April 2019 - 10:08 PM)

They frequently do, but yeah there's no rule. Google will usually answer it for a specific restaurant, though

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 April 2019 - 02:57 PM)

Depends on the restaurant and the area. There's no universal rule about it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 April 2019 - 02:41 PM)

I thought restaurants were one of the few things that stayed open on holidays, along with movie theatres and the like

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 April 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Well here I am hungry on a Sunday afternoon and I head to Chipotle only to find out right then and there that the place is closed for Easter. Yay.

@  MEDdMI : (19 April 2019 - 09:21 PM)

oof, yikes. Good luck.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 April 2019 - 09:18 PM)

We're in the middle of a kitchen reno and NOTHING will be done until tuesday. I could beat a four day weekend with a hammer right now if it meant I could use my stove again.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 April 2019 - 06:47 PM)

Can't beat 4 day weekends either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 April 2019 - 06:47 PM)

I prefer later shifts myself, but my 3 day weekend shift isn't bad. Nice to work without those administration busy bodies poking around.

@  Nevermore : (19 April 2019 - 04:12 AM)

Yeah, traffic is a plus as well. Rarely got any trouble getting to work on late shift (even with the neverending construction site on the highway), and when my shift is over, there's hardly any traffic at all anymore.

@  MEDdMI : (18 April 2019 - 06:27 PM)

while I don't have weekends consistently off, working 2nd shift isn't so bad. I'm more likely to do stuff before work than after (when I'm already tired). Plus no rush hour traffic

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 April 2019 - 05:03 PM)

Switching shifts constantly is never good for one's health. There was a time when I worked overnights steady for about 2 years; did wonders for my health, as well

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:36 PM)

Don't miss early shift (and especially switching back and forth every two weeks) a bit.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:36 PM)

Man, permanent late shift really has done wonders for my overal well-being. Never having to get up early for work, staying up late, weekends off... a ot of my coworkers think I'm crazy, but late shift is really my preferred shift.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:33 PM)

(My total lack of sleep on that day might have contributed, though.)

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:33 PM)

At noon, it was warm.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:33 PM)

On Monday, we went on strike early in the morning, I was also wearing to jackets and gloves and my toes and fingers were freezing.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 April 2019 - 04:31 PM)

Nope, right now my days are doing that. Frigid at night (Well, just below zero, but still.) and warm enough to be always be ill prepared during the day.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:28 PM)

Today it's so warm I had to take a shower to wash off the sweat after a lengthy bike trip.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:27 PM)

This past Friday I was wearing two jackets and winter gloves outside and took a hot bath when I returned home.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:27 PM)

Is "April weather" an issue in other countries as well, or is that specifically a German phenomenon?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 April 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Well, when you understand the history of the area it make sense. It's basically a series of countries buying the place, moving in, saying "we rule you people now", and the locals shrugging and responding, "okay, you have fun with that".

@  Sabrblade : (16 April 2019 - 07:58 AM)

When did we all turn into Henry Higgins?

@  unluckiness : (16 April 2019 - 03:16 AM)

To be fair, most Americans can't get the hang of English, so I can understand why.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 April 2019 - 03:15 AM)

(And yeah, Calliope is a Greek muse, not French, but the street was named BY the French when they took over.)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 April 2019 - 03:10 AM)

In New Orleans there's a bunch of streets with French names that are pronounced by locals with a more English emphasis, for example "Calliope Street" is pronounced "CAL-lee-ope".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 11:56 PM)

I figured as much for Canadians.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 April 2019 - 11:37 PM)

hm; whenever I've heard people talk about the school they said it the same way as the cathedral...but I guess that's in Canada, so they're probably more familiar with the cathedral than the school

@  Dracula : (15 April 2019 - 11:11 PM)

There's plenty of place names in the US like that. Around here we have an "el doh-RAY-doh," and up north there's a Cairo that's pronounced "kay-roh"

@  RichardT1977 : (15 April 2019 - 09:56 PM)

Yeah, the common pronunciation of the University is probably the reason most Americans don't pronounce the Cathedral name correctly.

@  Arazyr : (15 April 2019 - 08:03 PM)

That's my understanding of how the two are supposed to be pronounced as well.

@  Echowarrior : (15 April 2019 - 07:42 PM)

When I'm talking about the cathedral, I say "noh-treh dahme". When I talk about the university, I say "noh-ter dayme". I don't see a problem with that.

@  Paladin : (15 April 2019 - 06:26 PM)

guessing "Hunchback" just got bumped WAY down the list for Disney's live-action remakes...

@  Patch : (15 April 2019 - 05:56 PM)

We all pronounce it wrong, so no one knows enough to care.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 April 2019 - 05:40 PM)

It'd be odd for most Americans not to know how to pronounce Notre Dame, considering they have a University with the same name that's the subject of a relatively popular film based around a sport most Americans love

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 04:22 PM)

Three or four more hours will be needed to contain the fire.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 04:22 PM)

Update from France 24: the Paris Fire Brigade says two towers and the main structure of the cathedral have been saved from complete destruction.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 03:57 PM)

One does not have to speak French to know that rhyming with "voter name" is off the mark.

@  Locoman : (15 April 2019 - 03:51 PM)

Really? It's an international tragedy and you're zeroing in on the people who maybe don't speak French?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 03:44 PM)

@Tm_Silverclaw I just read on BBC News that the cause is not yet clear, but officials suspect the fire could be linked to renovation work.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 03:42 PM)

Oh boy, here we go with the U.S.-American newscasters who can't pronounce "Notre Dame" correctly.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 April 2019 - 03:38 PM)

Too soon to say.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 April 2019 - 03:20 PM)

Do we know if it was an attack? Arson? Or just bad wiring?

@  Nevermore : (15 April 2019 - 02:10 PM)

Religion is dead?

@  Paladin : (15 April 2019 - 02:01 PM)

major cathedral burning down on Holy Week is some kind of metaphor.

@  Benbot : (15 April 2019 - 12:54 PM)

Hard to believe a wonder of the world could just be wiped out so easily. Hopefully they can still save it

@  Benbot : (15 April 2019 - 12:51 PM)

Well, Notre Dame is burning down

@  Benbot : (15 April 2019 - 10:05 AM)

yikes I thought the site was going to be down for a while

@  Nevermore : (14 April 2019 - 09:07 PM)

So, time for another strike. No sleep for me tonight. Oh well.

@  Nevermore : (14 April 2019 - 09:04 PM)

Think Game of Thrones "light" meets Cabaret and you get the idea.

@  Nevermore : (14 April 2019 - 09:03 PM)

Kinda sorta, just with more intrigue, conspiracy, depravity, crime and violence.

I do think probably one thread will suffice, so I have merged. Or perhaps I should say I have created a fan edit of the original two threads.


But replacing it is... a PG-13 cut of Deadpool 2.

On time (well, okay, a couple of days late):
 

I only played the first TF arcade game last year (at a Dave & Buster's, incidentally) and thought it was pretty fun stuff. Granted I essentially had infinite credits.

We get it, you invested wisely hundreds of years ago.


This probably doesn't warrant its own new thread, but it turns out that for some reason we don't have active threads for Robot Heroes or Revenge of the Fallen.


I want a Vector Prime with real rotating gears.
 
If the gears stop he turns all gray and dies.

Okay, did I miss something, or did anybody else notice that the Throne of THE PRIMES, including a Prime Master of THE ARISEN, is coming out (to non-SDCC attendees, at least) on August THIRTEENTH?
 
Gotta wonder of that was intentional...

On problem solving:
 

I fix a lot of my deco problems recently with Gundam markers.  Then again, it's a mistake to think you can solve ALL problems with Gundam markers.  Once, I tried to solve the USA/Japan trade imbalance with Gundam markers.  Didn't work.  Honestly, it made it worse, I had to ship the markers from Japan as there wasn't a USA seller that had what I wanted.  So, like I said, not great for EVERYTHING but for simple recolors, they can do the job.

On the end of IDW as we know it (and I feel fine):
 

I would love if Unicron just gets taken out in 10 pages. Prime just goes "I got this" and pops open The Matrix then high-fives ROM.

Then half of Cybertron is consumed by the real threat. Let's say, oh, Frenzy.


Unicron's been pushed back. Again.

Wait really? I thought I heard that the latest missile assault had no effect. Thank goodness. We have our planet for a little bit longer.


I know it's not going to happen in the time we have left, but I would have loved to see an IDW take on the Quintesson rebellion.

Y'know, something like "the first Transformer who said 'no'," Planet of the Apes style.

Quintesson: Now, Creation, are you prepared to submit to the will of your creators, or do you intend to continue this foolish and unproductive disobedience?

Archerbot: NO


If OP 25 will be naming a new Prime, I'm going to guess it will be a new combiner made from Pyra Magna, Slide, a revived Metalhawk, Spike, and a fifth character implied to be that one other character you absolutely hate. They will only rarely use their combined form because the combiner usually loses track of its opponents due to an overwhelming urge to utterly destroy itself.


Something being common in comics fandom does not mean it's a reasonable response. Of anything it trends the opposite direction.


Slide realizes she could have left at any time right... rather than just sit there and whine about Optimus?

The plan is to have Slide whine Unicron to death.  She's been playing into Optimus's scheme the whole time.

Truly, is there any better representation of Slide's character than that panel of her whinging about Optimus Prime while a city-sized robot tyrannosaurus blows up in the background?

What are you talking about?

It's obviously gold with white stripes!


All Star Mode this time around is kind of a hassle. The AI is programmed differently, with projectile users camping and everyone throwing themselves at you once you're off stage to try and keep you from getting back. They are acutely aware that they are expendable. Characters also loop, because once I killed Incineroar, another Mr. Game and Watch spawned. It's not really needed for anything but if you want to do well at All Star mode, somebody once told me

On Go-Bots:
 

What a wasted opportunity to not have that gladiator be not-Megatron so that Cy-kill can finally have vengeance after all these years.


On the other hand, Rankin Bass might have come up with a stop-motion GoBots Christmas special, involving Cy-Kill teaming up with the Heat Miser to ruin Christmas.

Cy-Kill ruins Christmas by sending his forces to the houses of children who asked for Transformers and being their presents instead.

On how Shockwave is everyone:
 

i hope shockwave creates the next idw universe at the end of this one


I'm now expecting Shockwave to say "That kiss was also part of my ultimate plan." and it was Liege Maximo (the deceiver!), not Arcee, who was kissing Aileron all along. This is what I've been reduced to.


Is anyone able to confirm with 100% certainty that John Barber isn't in fact Shockwave? I mean have you seen them in the same room? After today I will believe anything.


so, like, we're all in agreement that shockwave is also sideways, right


Shockwave escapes at the end. Unicron eats the entire universe, including the fabric of spacetime itself, but just before the final gulp, Shockwave escapes into some warp and we don't see him die.

We would be waiting for his re-emergence forever. FOR EV ERR. 17 years and two product trilogies from now we'd still be like "so where's Shockwave?"

And someday they'd bring him back, too!


He's Shockwave, he's Shockwave, you're Shockwave, I'm Shockwave! Are there any other Shockwaves I should know about?!


The final battle should be Optimus and Shockwave just repeatedly throwing one another into the singularity, with a nearby character immediately turning out to be one of them in disguise after each time.


You know that "there's only one electron/positron in the universe, moving backwards and forwards in time" idea?

Shockwave is the only Transformer in the IDW universe.


[Final page of Unicron #6, in which Unicron was revealed to be a malignant future version of Hunter O'Nion]
 
Shockwave sits up abruptly from a nightmare.
 
All of IDW was a 15-billion-year dream that he had.
 
"Phew," he says. "It is only logical that I now remove this mask--"
 
--revealing the face of Optimus Prime.  "Truly, it never ends." </scene>

Aligned did establish that no matter how everyone looks on modern Earth, the past on Cybertron was always kinda G1.

Maybe it's always the 80s when you go back to Cybertron, even now. There are places on Earth where hair metal or grunge never went away, and that doesn't even take into account a race of alien mechanoids who age on a geologic scale. Every time you go back to Cybertron it's neon and synthwave. If you're visiting it seems cool, but if you're from there it's always a little bit embarrassing.


I don't expect much Blitzwing at this point because clearly there is something secret about him. The secret may be that he dies immediately and doesn't merit a lot of toys


Wait, are you implying that Michael Bay is the Hulk to Travis Knight's Bruce Banner?

Don't make me extremely successful. You wouldn't like me when I'm extremely successful.

"We need you to make an explosion now, Knight!"
"That's my secret, Captain.  I'm always making explosions."

On The New Adventures of IDW Transformers:
 

IDW
IIDW
IIIDW
IVDW
 
OK, guess we might have an issue if we get to a fifth IDW universe.


We can die!

we can die
we can die
we can die
we can die 
we can die
 
WE CAN SIIIIIIIIIIIING!


Law & Order: First Ever Murder Victim Unit

 

Cruisin' on down main street. You're relaxed and feelin' good! Next thing that you know, you're seein'...
A DEAD BODY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD?!

I knew I should have stayed in Iacon today.


stege toyline: battle damage!  Cracks and scuffs everywhere!  guns up the wazoo!  some characters are actually a living composite of several guns!!!
 
stege comic: cybertron is a perfect, beautiful paradise never before touched by death


That the average Transformer has survived death once is a misleading statistic.  Optimus Georg, who live in Iacon and dies 10,000 times a day, was an outlier and should not have been counted.

On OMG HAWT ROBO LADY:
 

Setting aside the grossness of the statue for a second, why would you pay hundreds of dollars for a quote unquote "sexy" statue when you could just go to an art museum for, like, 30.

Because horny nerds didn't see those statues in a cartoon in the '80s.

Because going to a museum won't make visitors to your home deeply uncomfortable.

On the identity of the Grand Architect:
 

Simon Furman!

Grapple. He's always designing buildings, that guy.

Nominus Prime of the Functionist Universe who is really the Arisen from our reality having fallen through Threadbare Space due to Onyxwave's machinations trying to put right what once went wrong and hoping each time that the next leap will be the leap home.

A minor character who only showed up in three panels, we know absolutely nothing about and looks completely different from last time.

Stan Lee

An Unknown Evil.

The Transformers (Marvel, UK) Issue No. 113

Old Man Jenkins.

"WHO'S THAT ARCHITECT?!"
 
"IT'S PIKACHU!"

I like the idea that they reveal the Grand Architect and he's just Overlord's legs.

On nostalgia:
 

When it's sunny out, don't let the fact that it's going to rain again sometime in the future spoil the sunshine.
 
Even if everyone around you is like SHIT YEAH RAIN and talking about how much better it is that it's rainy and thank god we got rid of all that boring sun so we could go back to things being rainy, and it feels an awful lot like the people in charge of the atmosphere ALSO think the only thing that matters is rain, and yeah sometimes it definitely feels like we're in for basically ten years of nothing but rain while everyone rolls around in it squealing with joy because they can't like anything unless it's rain because it was rainy when they were five, but that just makes the little moments of sunshine that much more valuable.


The thing about new toys for old people is they have to compete with your childhood imagination, and this guy does okay. I can see this Optimus uprooting a telephone pole and swatting away Megatron in his big black car.

On Cyberverse Seekers:
 

Skywarp will show up, but will have a different head and wings.  And people will ask why they retooled him and if they could not retool him maybe and then Aaron Archer will show up from outta nowhere and say "????? HE WILL BE REMOLDED"


"I'm a jet, but I am going to fall long distances."

The jet thing mostly happens to Thundercracker, who I guess is just dumb as hell

too busy thinking about dogs

Or terrible screenplays.

all his terrible screenplays are just elaborate fanfiction about how cool Slipstream is


SHE IS THE CAPTAIN OF THE ELITE KNEELESS SEEKER SQUADRON AND YOU WILL SHOW HER RESPECT


Acid Storm is way too important to show up for episodes where she's not going to have to deliver dialogue, so they always have to shoot her lighting stand-in.
